Unusual cause of chest pain: Congenital absence of pericardium.

Congenital Absence of the Pericardium (CAP) is a rare anomaly which is either partial or complete. Complete CAP cases are usually asymptomatic and devoid of complications. We present a case with atypical chest pain evaluated with Cardiac Magnetic Resonance (CMR) imaging revealed features of complete CAP with adhesion along the lateral LV wall. Presence of atypical chest pain in complete CAP cases can be explained by adhesions of myocardium in absence of other complications.
